We visited here on vacation and it was a delicious meal. They let us sample all the curries before ordering - nice touch. Used a Groupon based upon reviews on Trip Advisor making it a great deal. Located close to our hotel in Mission Bay....Would recommend highly!More

One of our favorites. There are curries from around the world, including Indian, Thai, and Japanese. Several vegan options available, and most of them can be made anywhere from mild to hot. The garlic naan is delicious. I enjoyed the vegan Singapore curry this time,...my husband had the vindaloo (made with chicken). While they have some beers on tap, I appreciate the fact that they have multiple types of hard cider (in bottles, but at least there are choices).More

I found this restaurant on Groupon and decided to give it a try on my next visit to San Diego. It was worth every penny. The food was delicious. I had the Chicken Masala, my wife had the Yellow Curry and we shared a Naan...bread. Every mouthful was a unique experience that excited my taste buds for more. The atmosphere was pleasant, and the view was interesting. I must warn though, if the sliding door is open, do not sit near it. We had to fight off flies the whole time we ate there (the first time). Since then, we found sitting closer to the kitchen was best. Enjoy!More

I was invited to dinner at World Curry by a group of friends. Everyone had been there in the past but me. I was familiar with the area, but just drove passed it without noticing it monthly. Now that I know how delicious it is,...I will never drive past it without craving it! As a bonus, the presentation is lovely. The rice comes in a cool pyramid form. It is casual, local, beachy and the large portions make delicious left overs!More

They have a comfortable dining room to enjoy their wide choice of Curries, Naan, and a wide variety of interesting beverages.

If you love curry, this is a must when you're in San Diego. Parking can be difficult, since Pacific Beach is very popular and World Curry gets crowded (especially on weekends), so if you can get there earlier it's a good idea. The food is...amazing and service is always very good. I wish I could go more often!More

The food is very good at this restaurant. Choose the type of curry you want, how hot you want it and the size. A glass of Thai Ice Tea goes along well with the food.

Vegan, vegetarian or carnivores, all appetites are satisfied. I recommend the houmous as appetizer. Both of our curry were very good. Lot of food but not heavy.

The food here can barely be considered Indian food. The chicken vindaloo in no way resembled any vindaloo dish I've had anywhere in the world, including India. It looked and tasted like spicy pulled pork. The chicken tikka masala was mediocre, but as we were...hungry ate it all. We asked for it hot and it was barely mild. There is no way the chicken was anywhere near a tandoori oven and instead of being cut was also pulled off the chicken. Not that that is bad, but definitely odd for an indian dish. And, the naan was barely cooked and doughy and based on the odd texture with the dimples on one side seemed like it might have been frozen naan or frozen pizza dough. Combine this with the slow and indifferent service, wiping the table with chemically hand wipes from a packet and the overall quirky ambience, this is a place that we would never return and was incredibly disappointing considering it was (somehow!) ranked #2 of all Indian restaurants in San Diego. I can probably think of 20 off the top of my head that are better than this place and actually serve Indian food.More
